Paragraphs

The bulk of the content in a document is paragraph text. This is why the AsciiDoc language doesn’t require any special markup or attributes to specify paragraph content. You can just start typing.

Create a paragraph

Adjacent or consecutive lines of text form a paragraph element. To start a new paragraph after another element, such as a section title or table, hit the RETURN key twice to insert a blank line, and then continue typing your content.

Example 1. Two paragraphs in an AsciiDoc document
Paragraphs don't require any special markup in AsciiDoc.
A paragraph is just one or more lines of consecutive text.

To begin a new paragraph, separate it by at least one blank line from the previous paragraph or block.
